The Care Process

2. THE RADIOTHERAPY TREATMENT PROCESS:

a. If you choose to proceed with radiation therapy treatment, you will undergo imaging studies aimed at viewing the exact extent of the cancer. Using the imaging data, the radiation therapy team creates an individualized treatment plan with advanced computer software. During this stage, our radiation oncologist, dosimetrist, and medical physicist collaborate to develop the best treatment delivery plan for your specific case. This may take a day, or sometimes weeks, to complete, so please ask about your relevant timelines to avoid frustration and anxiety. The goal of this planning process is to develop a course of treatment that will maximize the dose of radiation the tumor receives to destroy the cancer cells while minimizing exposure to the surrounding healthy tissue.
